Although the first inhabitants can be dated back to around 2000 B.C., the land which Esthyra situated on was rarely populated. Colonizers had attempted to colonize the land, however most of the colonists were either intoxicated by local people or disappeared in groups. For Ingerish colonists, Esthyra was a no-go land.
Although there was always a flow of migration between neighbour Midistland and Esthyra, the biggest wave took place in the early 19th century, when almost all indigenous people from a village called Paglobeclaca (In nowadays Rugenia, Midistland) migrated to the Santa Clara deltas, which was later named Abralona. A self-governing government was set up quickly and the Reino de Paglobeclaca was founded. In 1806, due to the Eshein Chaos (In which Queen Angela of Eshein set King Whotch's Palace in Tengah on fire, burning most of the city), more Midistlandese took refuge and settled in the southwest (Today Lake Town and Breassau del Alto) started another country called Free State of Breassau. In 1824 the exploration of the rest of the land had begun, however, none of the exploration team had returned.
In 1846, the Paglobeclacan government decided to hire an Ingerish research team to explore the land east of the Santa-Genoveva River despite public objection. In return, the Ingerish team was allowed to bring people and settle along the newly-explored Erilyn Bay and the lower part of Erilyn River, today the region of Erilyn. However, with no Ingerish contact over time, their ties with Ingerland eventually faded. In 1862, some Ataraxian settled in the upper part of Erilyn River, today the region of Callemagne. There was some local conflicts, but there was no war. In 1876, the Free State of Breassau was dissolved, with the lower part annexed by Midistland. The rest joined Paglobeclaca.
Due to the Ingerish colonization of Garzibania, the two eastern part, Erilyn and Callemagne, decided to formally union to defend themselves. This plan was also heavily supported by the Government of Paglobeclaca despite some dissent from the population, thus the Treaty of Esthyra was signed in Abralona in July 1, 1892, founding the country. Today, the treaty's authority is still being challenged by Paglobeclacan sovereigntists, as it did not go through a popular vote.
In the beginning of the 20th Century, Ataraxia decided to annex the Haut-Var region, causing more Ataraxians to take refuge in Callemagne, where Ingerish people sparsely settled in. Esthyra's population further diversified. In 1912, to deal with the global economic depression, the government held a referendum to move the capital to Erilyn City in order to artificially boost the economy. The relocation project started in 1913 and ended in 1923.
Esthyrans had never experienced war, although they rescue war refugees very often.

Esthyra has a diversified economy, with the main export being farming produces, and other major exports including lumber and fisheries. Esthyra is the home of some of the world's biggest companies, like KaspenRails.
Esthyra is one of the earliest countries that adopted internet services. Today, the Esthyran IT industry is one of the fastest-growing in the world. The Hackington neighbourhood of Erilyn City is considered the Silicon Valley of eastern Uletha.
Esthyra uses Esthyran Dollars (ET$ or E$) as the national currency. It is currently the only currency that has each banknotes barcoded in order to track money flow. Coins with value of E$0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1 as well as notes with value of E$1, 5, 10, 20, 50 are issued.
There are plans to implement a national digital version of the currency as well as adding chips into coins.
All railways are operated by KaspenRails, Esthyra's own multinational railway company. Except for Erilyn City which has metro and tram systems, buses are used in towns and cities throughout the country. All transport authorities uses the same fare system established by the National Transit Fare Council (NTFC.ET).
Trains are the most popular way to travel between towns, as government subsidies and the unified fare system keep them cheap. Highway buses are only used when there is no train available.
AngelCard, a multi-use non-rechargeable magnetic card, is currently the most used fare media. While AlrauneCard, a rechargeable IC card, is also available, most people prefer using AngelCard for its collectibility and its feature on controlling the personal budget.
